Overview

Hand-harvested Pinot Noir from chalk and silex soils. Aged primarily in foudres with some neutral French oak barriques. While other producers see red Sancerre as a side job, this is a big priority at the domaine, with great care and attention given to the raw material. Delicious Pinot Noir.
